Financial advisers

34% of financial advisers believe more women should be involved in the industry




Over a third of financial advisers (34%) believe that their firm must recruit more women in both senior and junior roles, according to the latest research.

Financial advice network Openwork revealed that 18% of women would definitely consider a career as a financial adviser, with 29% suggesting they’d consider a career in financial services depending on training support.

The study was unveiled at Openwork’s annual Women in Financial Services conference at Gibson Hall in London.

“Openwork is committed to increasing the number of women working in financial services and [the] conference shows that there is a huge appetite among many women to pursue a career in financial advice,” said Claire Oldstein, chief marketing officer at Openwork.

“The entire event was shaped by the goals and the needs of Openwork’s female network, the desire to find role models, engage with peers and learn from each other.

“Recruiting more women is good for business as much as anything else, but it is perfectly clear that the industry as a whole must do much more to tackle the recruitment issue.”
